You probably have the same problem I have - take a sample of your water to a pool store and have it tested. I did and needed to add alkalinity, pH enhancer, algaecide and one other chemical. You need a balance. Without doing this you could just continue to spin your wheels. IN ADDITION:Water can get full. Meaning the water cannot and will not absorb any more chemicals no matter how much you add. It may need to be softened with a brine or saltwater filter. This will remove a lot of the chemicals in the water that are not needed and allow the chlorine to be dispersed properly.
